Uganda is in many ways the heart of Africa.

A land of ancient kingdoms, mysterious, cloud-wreathed mountains and Rift Valley Lakes, its people are as warm and friendly as its landscapes are awe-inspiring. Discover the source of the Nile River (the search for which obsessed early European explorers) and the dramatic Murchison Falls where the water is forced through the narrowest of gaps in the rocks. Uganda safaris let you marvel at the sheer diversity of birdlife, and trek high into the misty cloud forests in search of endangered mountain gorillas.

The Bwindi Impenetrable Forest is home to one of our closest relatives; many people rate encountering mountain gorilla as their most emotionally intense wildlife experience, and one that they’ll never forget. Certainly, gorilla trekking Uganda can be enthralling, but it is not the only experience on offer here.

The Queen Elizabeth National Park is rich in game, while the Kidepo Valley, overshadowed by mountains and criss-crossed by rivers, feels truly wild – in the best sense of the word. Even time spent in the capital can be rewarding – Kampala is a great example of an energetic, modern African city.
